Eldred subjugates the last of the southern tribes with the help of the Church of the Sun.
Littlebrook. Eldred builds his relationship with the new Church of the Sun and their High Priest, Ahmed of Khemit, and gets their warrior priests on his side. He wants them to support his drive to unite the tribes. Eldred subjugates the last of the southern tribes with threats and the backing of the new church - with a huge show of force. Caerdic speaks to Eldred and Lynna about the new religion and warns them that the High Priest is a corrupt spirit. It is clear there is still the old attraction between Caerdic and Lynna, but she is Eldred's wife.
